New York, occupy wall street, performance

Occupy Broadway

Hey again bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog. And today finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 77. And Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Together are still moving fast. And on this day also finds itself as Occupy Broadway to be found in that city of New York on that Street of 50th and Broadway in Times Square. And I know that today is Occupy Broadway because this Occupy Broadway Facebook event invite and that Occupy Broadway website says so. And that facebook event invite and website reads something like:

On Dec 2nd at 6pm, hundreds of performers and artists will occupy a privately owned public space in Times Square with 24 hours of non-stop free performances.

On December 2, 2011 New York artists will introduce tourists and New Yorkers going to Broadway shows or shopping themselves into debt to the idea of occupation as CREATIVE resistance with non-stop free performances. We will set up in a privately owned public space (POPS) near Times Square, turning once blandified space into a space for cultural production.
